Ever since the first week of JenningsMania ended, the Marlins have been pretty easy to ignore. We glance over at Giancarlo Stanton’s insane home runs four or five times a week and then glance away because, while car wrecks can be interesting, the Marlins are more of a broken-down car and those are just boring.
But our friend Old Gator pointed something out in the comments this morning that’s all kinds of fun:
- Marlins 2015 record under Mike Redmond: 16-22
- Marlins 2015 record under Dan Jennings: 14-22
They were six back when Redmond was fired. They’re ten and a half back now. Their run differential was -8 when Redmond was fired, now it’s -30.
It’s almost as if Redmond wasn’t the problem in Miami. Or, at the very least, that Jennings isn’t the solution.
